Integrated Microsystems Laboratory (IML) has been carrying research on integrated MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems) and VLSI circuit/System design. Currently, this laboratory has two major efforts in research activities: bio-interface system and imaging system.
The mission of this laboratory is to realize self-contained microsystems that will combine and process natural signals (such as bio, chemical, optical and thermal signals) as well as electrical signals on a single chip platform by integrating new MEMS/nano structures with low-power, wireless VLSI circuits and systems.
Our research direction and goals can be summarized with the following picture:
Miniaturized biochemical analysis system can be applied to autonomous instrument for environmental field measurement, automatic chemical analyzer and biomedical field such as blood analysis, micro dosing system, DNA analysis and etc. Our BioMEMS research includes study on bio-sensors, chemical-sensors, microfluidic devices and lab-on-chips....read more
Today, the market of digital imaging systems using a CMOS image sensor (CIS) are explosively grown due to a demand on the miniaturized, low-power, low-cost solutions for the surveillance systems as well as mobile/handheld devices. Due to the capability of integration with the circuitry and processing unit, CIS is the most powerful technology for the automotive, surveillance systems, wireless image sensor network which requires the integrated functions or performance enhancement schemes....read more
The research of Biomedical Interfaces is all about innovation of new human machine interfaces through skin, heart, central and peripheral nervous system. The main objectives are to give disable people the ability to feel the world as normal people would, to investigate and understand more about human and animal behavior, to be able to diagnose and treat heart and brain disorders... read more
